I'm Sophie | Cat Sitting in Los Angeles, CA

I adopted my cat Remus at just 6 weeks, and he is now over 2 years old and the best part of my day. We live in East Hollywood with my roommates and their two older cats, so we understand the complicated (and amazing) relationships that cats can have with their feline roomies. I have worked with cats who are shy, anxious, playful, and outgoing. The thing I love most about cats is that they all have their own unique personalities and require you to truly earn their trust as a caretaker! As a cat sitter, I can provide playtime, feeding, brushing, cleaning the litter box, administering medication, and any other needs your cats may have. My own cat requires ...

What is your favorite cat toy?

I love any kind of stick toy. Most cats I know just go crazy for it and it allows for them to unleash themselves while avoiding accidentally scratching you. My cat's personal favorite has a little flurry plush ball on the end, he's had it for years and it's like it's brand new every time we play!

How do you handle cats that are particularly timid or anxious?

In my experience, the key to timid cats is to give them their space. Showing them that you are there, but not going to pressure them by trying to touch them is the key. In my experience, it helps if I sit nearby and go on my phone pretending to ignore the cat. This can give them a sense of security that I won't bother them if they come out of hiding, and usually ends with the cat coming up to me! If the parents are okay with treats, I'll sometimes approach, leave a treat nearby and walk to a safe distance. It's all about respecting boundaries.

Not only was she able to provide strong, intuitive care for my cats when I had to rush out of town for a family emergency, but Sophie proved to be extremely flexible, quick to communicate and consistently provided me with reassuring updates throughout her sitting stint. She was even able to get my notoriously shy cats to come out of hiding and say hello, which is a minor miracle in itself! I will definitely be one of Sophie's repeat customer, although I would rather keep her to myself. :)

Sophie was wonderful with my active boy Benny! She provided daily updates and photos. I could see how happy he was to have her there to play with during her daily visits. Definitely recommend Sophie for all your cat sitting needs!

Frequently Asked Questions

will vary based on the pet sitter's experience and expertise, but the average price for a cat sitter is $39.00. Prices will also depend on how long your cat needs company for, whether that be a drop-in visit or overnight stay in your home. Meowtel sitters offer 20, 45, and 60-minute drop-in visits that allow for fully tailored care for your kitties. Your caregiver may also need to charge a little more if they have to travel far, so we'll match you with the best options which are close by.

Every Meowtel cat sitter has been thoroughly vetted, background-checked, and is insured through Meowtel on eligible reservations via our Meowtel Promise. To ensure total peace of mind while you're away, every Meowtel reservation comes with a free Meet & Greet so you (and your kitties!) can have full confidence in your sitter before you leave.

Cats are territorial animals and don't do well in new environments. The presence of other cats, dogs, and even birds in kennels or animal hotels cause an immense amount of stress for your kitties. This is why Meowtel was created, so tailored in-home care is brought to you.

We recommend that you book daily visits with your sitter to keep your cats in their routine and to help minimize feline anxiety while you're away.

Each Meowtel cat sitting visit will include the whole 9 yards: feeding, refreshing the water bowls, litter box scooping, tidying up, medications, updates with photos, lots of playtime, as well as any special requests you may have. We know every kitty is different and that's why we offer tailored, in-home services since cats don't do well outside their own homes. Plus, every reservation comes with a free Meet & Greet so you can meet your sitter before you leave to ensure it will be a purrfect fit.
